Jets’ Offensive Line Could Be Difference In Successful 2016

Breno Giacomini, Right Tackle

The second piece to this shaky right side of the line is Breno Giacomini.

Like Carpenter, he’s also a Super Bowl Champion, with the Seattle Seahawks. Unfortunately for the Jets, that was then and this is now.

New York likes Giacomini in the run game. He still does a solid job in Chan Gailey’s scheme as a guy with plenty of attitude as a mauler on the edge. Where it gets tricky for Giacomini is his contract.

Breno is slated to make $5.625 million this season. Should the Jets cut him at any point, they’d free up $5 million.

Guess what that means? It means if Ryan Fitzpatrick is going to walk through those doors, Giacomini is the guy who might feel the veteran cut casualty wrath.

He just doesn’t return the value needed at his salary. He’s a well below average tackle in the NFL.
